Neurosurgery - Cerebrovascular Surgery

Cerebrovascular disorders include lesions that may cause bleeding in the brain such as cerebral aneurysms and vascular malformations, as well as cerebrovascular occlusive disease- e.g. carotid artery stenosis, vertebral artery origin stenosis, or Moya-Moya disease- that may predispose a patient to stroke. Other vascular conditions may affect quality of life, such as transverse-sigmoid dural arteriovenous fistulas that are an important cause of pulsatile tinnitus. Significantly, many cerebrovascular disorders are best treated via a catheter (“endovascular surgery”) without the need for a skin incision or invasive surgical procedure, and others such as AVM may often be treated with radiosurgery.

Cerebrovascular diseases and disorders include:

  • Cerebral Aneurysm
  • Arteriovenous Malformation
  • Cavernous Malformation
  • Dural Arterio-Venous Fistula
  • Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency
  • Moya-Moya Disease
  • Carotid Artery Stenosis
  • Carotid Body Tumor
  • Intracranial-Extracranial Bypass Surgery
  • Vertebral origin stenosis
